Day 630 Watch Over Me (for Lauri Love)

Today is Wednesday. Today started the appeals hearing for Lauri. I was impressed with his defense counsel. My heart warmed to see the people in front of the court showing their support and love for this young man. If you don’t know the story, Lauri is charged with allegedly hacking gov’t entities in the US.
The US gov’t wants to extradite this autistic young man by trampling all over UK sovereignty.
As usual, the legal team for the US comes in with bluster and threats just like home. Gosh it’s so predictable and sick.
But, I digress. I wrote a poem and created some art. So, my dear young friend, Lauri, this is for you. Much love and peace to your heartsick Mum and Dad.

Watch Over Me

Just bone and flesh am I
Powerless to stand against this Empire
When my knees grow weak, my heart stalls as courage hides
Let me feel your wings, sense your reassuring smile
Please watch over me.

Standing just barely, believing truth must win
The dark fights to overshadow the light
I am not alone because I speak for so many
When my eyes close the nightmare steals inside
Let me feel your wings, sense your reassuring smile
Please watch over me.

Give wisdom to the ears that judge
Make the clever words and lies ring flat
Send a whisper of hope to stir my soul
Keep my spirit aflame and true
Let me feel your wings, sense your reassuring smile
Please watch over me.

Peace dear Lauri. Peace dear friends..πŸ’œπŸŒΉπŸ’™
